Got a copy of my pip assessment had a bit of a shock looks like I have got enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility this was my first time claiming. Hope the decision maker agrees with the assessor also states no review date due to my conditions will get worse not better only sent in 3 letters to back my claim this was advice from my benefits adviser who used to be a decision maker for the DWP also said decision maker normally goes with the assessors report. Fingers crossed I am now just waiting for final decision.

    That's great news @Sandy1964 that you got your PIP first go. This is excellent news.

    I am pleased the award should be 'indefinite' too

    I have my fingers crossed for you as well that your final decision is a really good one.
